What does the deep sleep option actually do?

I assume that, before this update added the option to disable it, it was enabled all the time?
Yes, and it can cause the monitor not to wake from sleep properly and require switching off and on again to wake up.

I updated to the latest firmware from the previous one. I don't know about black screens but now this firmware has broken G-SYNC. The Gsync indicator is "on" but the image is really choppy and frames are inconsistent. I had to revert to the previous firmware and it's back to being proper gsync smooth again. This firmware update is a big no-no.
Which firmware did you go back to? 3.03, 0, 6.05 or 4.04, 39, 6.06?

If you reverted to the 3.03 version, would you mind sharing the zip file please?

I'm not sure G-Sync is working properly for me either, so I might also revert.

I have a weird tearing issue with my monitor, which just started tonight.

My Xbox Series X is connected to HDMI 2. All of a sudden, I'm now getting a very noticeable tear in every game I play, as well as on the Xbox dashboard. The tear is always in the same place. Here's an example in Forza Horizon 5: -


I have tried 3 different Ultra High Speed HDMI cables and it's the same with all of them, so it's not the cable. If I connect the Xbox to HDMI 1, it works fine with all 3 cables, so it doesn't appear to be the Xbox either. I'm guessing it must be the port on the monitor itself.

Has anyone had an issue like this with a monitor before?

Does anybody else get lag/delay when after minimizing a game and then going into it, and when you swap from a different input port?

I can confirm this issue also with mac mini m1 connected to display port 1.4. Workaround is to turn off and on the screen and it will go back to normal. There are major issue though getting the monitor to wake up and be detected after mac os goes to sleep. Updated the firmware few days ago through a windows tablet but still cannot solve the issue.

Just received my screen with a crack in the glossy black surrounding. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Generally very impressed with the screen otherwise. *Edit* dead pixel/lint under the screen right next to the damaged area to add to the annoyance.

The other issue is not LG's fault but 144hz refresh at 4k on MacOS is limited to 95Hz (60Hz with HDR). Apple has broken Displayport 1.4 DSC with AMD GPU's in Big Sur, its still broken in Monterey!

My experience from the second firmware update. The first update had version 4.04, 31, 6.06 and it completely fixed black screens for me, like 50+ hours of gaming with freesync ON at 160 Hz and within the freesync FPS window (45-160). After updating to the second firmware 4.04, 39, 6.06 I saw a black screen within 3 hours of gaming, and I had to alt+tab and change refresh rate to 144 Hz and then back to 160 Hz to remove slight stuttering occurring after the black screen blinked. So, I've downgraded back to 4.04, 31, 6.06, BIG thanks to @Ralph23 for the link. My model is 27GP950-BB.ARUOMPN.
